SMX are Max O'Brien and Sam Purcell (Blank Mind). 'Sleep' is an intoxicating live jam recorded in October 2015 during a period of emotional upheaval, exploring themes of discordance and euphoria.
On 'Thief', Koehler says: "Take what you need and take it anyway you can. If you get it, you deserve it, because it means you earned it. But just remember one thing: whatever you take can be taken from you too, so think long, act fast and do so with honour and pride or all will become chaos."

This is rather difficult to describe. It's pretty minimalist with a strong focus on the drumming patterns, yet these are rather gentle and not aggressive. The more the listener progress through the tracks, some melodies start to come in smoothing a bit the edges. I'd recommend listening from beginning to end in one go to get the full scope of this EP.
